    This might be the game's way of telling me to get the fuck on with Crowbar, but it's not the boss of me.

    It appears that when I load my working copy of PL Scarlatine, Hammer will crash after the loading bar has reached 100%. Interestingly, if I load the map in the HL2 version of Hammer it gives me the message "Model models/props_mining/track_arc_90degree_256.mdl not found and models/error.mdl couldn't be loaded" before crashing out. Deleting these from the VMF manually doesn't help for the TF2 version. I'll keep investigating.

    Have you downloaded the ABS pack since the Halloween update?
    Have you mapped since the Halloween update?

    Yeah, models/error.mdl is a core file that should always be available. Something is broken with the default search path.

    Tested it on my laptop with the updated ABS pack and it's fine. Don't think I've updated it on my desktop so it's probably that.
